Whether on land or in the air, nothing can stop the Air Hogs Hover Assault!

The Air Hogs Hover Assault is a helicopter that drives on land. Also it is a car that flies and also it is a missile launching gunship. It's all of those things. At its core, I suppose you can say it's based around a 2-channel RC helicopter, as all of its power to move about comes from two co-axial, counter-rotating heli rotors up top.Ultra-lightweight, but oversized wheels are made of solid pieces of molded foam, attached to the main body via thin suspension arms. These are completely free-spinning and unpowered. The front two are fixed facing forward, but the rear two can move slightly side to side to allow the Hover Assault to turn. To make things even more interesting, there are four missile launchers built into the nose of the craft, and you can shoot from the ground or in flight.

The controller is very straightforward, like a normal entry-level helicopter transmitter, with throttle on the left and yaw on the right. Unlike most land-based RC toys, this one has no reverse. It charging takes about 30 minutes.
